Foreign in the sense that its focus is a subcontinent half a world away, the weekly newspaper India West
is in another sense entirely homegrown: published in San Leandro and written in English, the native tongue to second- and third-generation Indian Americans and a lingua franca for those with roots in a nation where more than twenty different languages are spoken. With its office a stone's throw from Silicon Valley, the multi-award-winning weekly covers business and high-tech, but also politics, youth culture, education, medicine, fashion, lifestyle, and entertainment -- from Bollywood to beauty pageants, from diaspora issues to tips on how to dress as best befits your astrological sign. While local news gets prominent placement, Indians and Indian Americans all over the United States and the world fill these pages every week.
